Forget about Dairy Queen and Eegee’s and make room in your life for the next best thing: raspados. All it takes is one taste and you will never be the same. There is a flavor for everyone and you can be assured that you will find the best raspados in the Tucson area without a problem especially at these three locations:
With a variety of natural flavors to choose from, Sonoran Delights will not disappoint you. The locale also doubles as a taqueria, so you can make the best of your visit by getting some tacos and dessert. Founded by the Robles family who are native to Obregon, Sonoran, Mexico, Sonoran Delights stays true to its roots and keeps the traditional Mexican flavors that are sometimes hard to find.
Pay Oasis Fruit Cones a visit during a hot summer night and enjoy a sweet, walnut raspado as you talk the night away with friends. Don’t let the size of the locale fool you, the service is great and the raspados are the main crowd-pleasers. They also have other Mexican snacks such as tostilocos and mangoneadas.
Managed by fellow UA Wildcats and Robles family member Maria Fernanda Robles, Sonoran Sno-Cones is the sister locale to Sonoran Delights. The raspados are also made from natural flavors and can be enjoyed during any time of the hot summer days. Pay them a visit and you will be converted.
Dairy Queen who? So as I was saying, forget your typical frozen drinks, ice cream and shaved-ice snacks. Do yourself a favor and get hooked on raspados for the summer; trust me it’s not that hard to do and I promise you will stay refreshed all day long.
